We met Edgar at the train station in Ollantaytambo while we were picking up some additional water for our trek and right away, we knew we were in for a real treat: Funny and upbeat and ready for a good 2 days on the Inca Trail and touring Machu Picchu. On the train up to KM104 he took care to point out and explain the area and history we were traveling thru. His pride and respect for environment and culture continued thru the rest of the journey: discovering and showing off the tiniest orchids on the trail to explaining why chinchillas are running around Machu Picchu, his sharing of knowledge enhanced both days we spent with him and when saying good-by it truly felt like we were hugging a friend and not "just" a guide.
